Israeli Colonizers Attack A Palestinian Town Near Nablus

On Wednesday, a group of illegal paramilitary Israeli colonizers attacked Orif town’s outskirts, south of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonialist activities in the northern West Bank, said many paramilitary colonizers attacked an area near a local school.

Daghlas added that the Palestinians intercepted the attack and started forcing the assailants to leave before Israeli soldiers invaded the town and started firing gas bombs and concussion grenades at the Palestinians.

The colonies have recently escalated their violations and assaults against the Palestinians in the Nablus governorate, especially in Huwwara town, south of the city, and various nearby villages and towns.

All of Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Law.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory”.

WAFA: “Awawda Suspends Hunger Strike Upon Reaching Agreement For His Release”

RAMALLAH, Wednesday, August 31, 2022 (WAFA) – Palestinian detainee in Israeli jails, Khalil Awawda, suspended tonight his 172-day hunger strike after reaching an agreement with Israel to set a ceiling for his administrative detention and to be released on October 2, according to the Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs Commission.

Awawda, whose detention was suspended last week but not entirely ended which prompted him to reject it and continue with his hunger strike, will remain in hospital to recover after suffering serious deterioration on his health, according to the Palestinian Prisoner Society.

Awawda, a father of four girls, and detained since December 27 of last year after which he was slammed with administrative detention for six months, resumed his hunger strike on July 2 after suspending it earlier after 111 days of strike based on promises to release him before the occupation authority has reneged on its promise and renewed his administrative detention for four more months.

Over the years, Israel has placed thousands of Palestinians in administrative detention for prolonged periods of time, without trying them, without informing them of the charges against them, and without allowing them or their counsel to examine the evidence.
